“I think we should try out some new recipes,” Jenny said to me.

“Like Egyptian?” I asked, because sometimes my mind is a little slow.

“No,” she said. “…but what do they eat in Egypt?”

Somewhere in the middle of a nine hour car ride across the Midwest, Meal Ticket for 2 was born.

What do they eat in Egypt? We have so many foods available to us here in the city, so many international markets, and yet neither of us could really say.

And what about the rest of the world? Peru? New Zealand? Liechtenstein?? There are 196 countries in the world, and there must be a lot of food we’re missing out on.

Meal Ticket for 2 is our way of getting to travel the globe and try out dishes we could never find here at home. We are setting out to explore the world, one date night at a time.
